On the humor front — a front we really ought to visit more often, frankly — we would be remiss if we didn’t point you in the direction of The Onion today.
For those not in the know, The Onion is a satirical American news website that posts fake (but funny) news stories. Today, the website appears with the following message from the paper’s publisher:
As the longtime publisher of this news-paper, it is my duty and unrestrained pleasure to announce to you spittle-soaked readers that I have sold The Onion and all of its various holdings to a syndicate of industrious China-men from the deepest heart of the Orient.
The front page is covered in China related stories, which we leave you to explore for yourselves. Personally, my favorite headlines are “NASCAR: Why is it Not Done on Thousands of Bicycles?” and “Yao Ming!” This op-ed piece is also particularly good.
This special China edition has also brought to the surface one of my favorite Onion News Network videos.
